1945: The drama "The Bells of St. Mary's," starring Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman, premieres in New York City. The movie, about a priest and a nun who, despite their good-natured rivalry, try to save their school from being shut down, would prove enormously popular, earning $3.7 million at the box office, an all-time high for its studio, RKO Radio Productions. It would also earn eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Crosby, Best Actress for Bergman and Best Director for Leo McCarey.
